The king has been captured by Duskryn, and a council is being established. The name is being changed to Heaven’s Reach. And vaktar is in control. Pacem/Dulce/Ella/Thud/Lipton are trying to deal with the loyalist. They are allied with Neverwinter, but have a rocky relationship with Vale, due to their refusal to adopt a monarcy and follow their rule.
The capital of Vallen is the largest city in Vallen. Ruled by King Sterkor Duskyrn, he is a tyrannical King only concerned with power and wealth and little else. He has little concern for the rampant poverty throughout his city.
The outer ring is full of poverty and sadness. The inner ring has the rich people. The Inner Sanctum is the large citadel where the King lives, as well as the most important people.
